Hamlet in a bathtub, Juliet as one half of a same sex couple … Shakespeare Republic has launched!

We have launched!  And the response has been terrific so far!  We are so delighted at the feedback we have been getting online from fans to date.  Twitter, Facebook, wherever they are, the response has been so positive and we are so grateful!
